First Sewing Project of the Summer

I have been itching to sew something for the past couple of weeks. Yesterday I was off work and I got up early and decided to make a new blue jean purse for my mother.
I went through my stash of already made blocks for inspiration. These patriotic flying geese log cabin blocks caught my eye. This block has a total of 43 little pieces and is 7 inches high and 5 inches wide.

I went to the basement to bring up some old jeans and began cutting. Six hours later, I had this bag:

I used the side leg seam as a decorative accent. The back side is the same as the front.

I am happy with it.

Today I am planning to start my fairy guilt mother block. That should be fun.
